Without love, we would not suffer loss and we would not grieve. Grief is as normal to life as loving our parents, spouse, and children. Just as it takes time to grow a deep, mature, adult love, it takes time to resolve the grief over a significant loss. But in our post modern world, we want to deny and ignore grief. Our culture has abandoned all those rituals which helped our ancestors express and work through their griefs. Intense loss and deep grief usually bring up significant religious, spiritual, or existential questions that need to be grappled with and explored. Talking with an empathetic professional, trained in the dynamics of grief and educated in these spirituality and philosophy,

Each person who suffers the loss of a loved one experiences the pain of the loss in their own deeply personal way. For some the initial experience might be as a form of numbness or disbelief. For others it might come as an overwhelming feeling of abandonment. There are a great many ways to express grief and loss. My approach to therapy is to listen to your individual way of feeling the loss and to help you express your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs in the way that is most authentic to your personally in order to help you along your way to healing.

For those of you experiencing separation or loss, I am sorry for what you may be going through. I wish I could fix it and make the pain go away. Actually though, there is great value in experiencing these feelings and I am honored if you are reaching out and willing to face them. Good for you. Sadness, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance come with the territory and whatever you may be feeling is important. Please stay courageous and share. Help is here.

We were not created to navigate the turbulent waters of grief alone. When grief threatens to overwhelm, when you feel as though you can no longer go on, it may be a wise idea to reach out to have someone swim alongside you until you reach a new shore. I can help you cherish the good memories, creating space to reflect on and accept conflicted emotions from the loss of a complicated relationship, and in your own timing support you as you gradually let go and reintegrate to life without your loved one. This is an incredibly painful and often confusing place to be in, but you don't have to be here alone.

You'll experience a wide arrange of emotions including sadness and anger and I'll teach you how to handle strong emotions..You need to go through these feelings in order to grieve properly.

Loss can be experienced in many different ways - death (expected or sudden), ending of a relationship, and/or life transitions. Well meaning friends and family can try to get us to "move past it" faster than we are ready to. These interactions can be hurtful and sometimes add to our pain. Working through issues of grief and loss can give you a safe place to express your feelings so that you can work through your disbelief, pain, and anger to a place of healing.

All losses are a form of death this side of Heaven. We will mourn the losses together and ask the Spirit if He wants to talk with you about other losses. We will forgive those who caused the losses, and listen for any lies that you may have believed at that time. We'll bring in any new truths God wants you to know. I assure you, the losses will lift. . We will help your body recover from the suffering. We will help you re-build friendships, faith and trust in a God who loves you. We will help you recover your sense of humor, your appetite, and your enjoyment of life. In time you will be stronger, more loving, more compassionate than you thought possible. Loss is a master teacher in life.
